Scissorkast 11: Sugarwater

Lucky for you, the first Scissorkast in too long is an all-music/no-talking affair. (I need an XLR adapter for my microphone). 100% new music, much of it unreleased, hitting the usual mix of instrumental electronic, emotive headphone post-rock, experimental dancefloor stuff and the like.

New offering from Ghostly recording artist Christopher Willits just found it’s way into my inbox.
